I'm sure they just want a completed FAFSA, and the FAFSA itself will tell you whether you need to put your parents' information (if you're a dependent, if I remember correctly).
Because we're applying to professional school, we all qualify as independent students and so by FAFSA standards do not need to include parents' financial info. However, some law schools want to see your parents' info in order to truly determine need-based aid since so many applicants are right out of undergrad and are still in reality dependents. W&L does not need this because, as one of their admissions officers told me in an email, they do not give need-based aid, they only make sure you're qualified for federal student loans.
